Every day, we're faced with the following exercise: to give the world around us a certain cue. To smile, to take everything as a joke, to laugh out loud, or to allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by reality. To be painfully aware of the distance between us and our dreams, of the obstacles, and the fact that we are alone all the time. Some choose to escape, to build their own world, with it's own rules, with the memories of fairy tales and dreams that really come to be. A world where three friends are brought together by the same destination. Or maybe, it all comes down to daydreaming. And feeling the empty spaces with music. It all depends on how you choose to see things. In black, in white, or in sync with the beat. Billion Star Hotel, for each viewer, a different story.

A moment of magic behind the curtain of stars

Bilion Star Hotel

A "strange" movie which rises pleasant sensations.

Told in reverse chronological order like Nolan's Memento, with an magical color grading that reminds me of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, divided into chapters like a Tarantino movie, this story somehow manages to capture all the best in one box ...

The three main characters: Arthur Smith, Panait and General Sica, are traveling with the "train of life" to a place without regrets, in an universe without limits.

There, everything is for free..., you can eat as much as you want, party and be happy until the end of time, but they are used with a hard, cruel life and they can't accept the paradise...

They don't believe in "fake" miracles, and they want to leave it as soon as possible

This movie is telling us, that even if you are poor or rich, everybody has a place under the roof of a Billion Star Hotel.
